The best films are those that manage to generate emotion in their audience without ever feeling phony or melodramatic. Rain Man does exactly that.

Everything about the acting and direction of Rain Man is so exquisitely calibrated and so right that it's all too easy to forget how much could have gone wrong.

While everyone remembers this film about an autistic man as Dustin Hoffman's Oscar-winning triumph, it is equally Tom Cruise's.

January 13, 2014
Under Barry Levinson's astringent direction, Hoffman and Cruise evoke honestly earned emotions. Don't pass on this wonderfully funny and touching movie. There's magic in it.

When the great screen performances of 1988 are considered for Oscar nomination, expect Hoffman's name on the list.

A fascinating, often very moving, frequently funny film.

It's an honorable effort, touched by a certain lightness and grace.

It has a heart as good as Raymond's own, which is more than a lot of Hollywood movies can say for themselves at the moment.

What no one can argue is that Rain Man is Cruise's quantum leap, so that it can be said unblushingly that he holds his own with the masterly Hoffman.

Of course, it's annoying. But it's also funny, touching and true, striking chords without ever reducing Raymond to a performing puppy. Definitely.

The strength of the film is really that of Cruise's performance, his finest since Risky Business.

There's something indelible about Rain Man, and not only to those of us who lived through the time when it was a zeitgeist movie. [Blu-ray]

If you can somehow ignore all this hype... then Rain Man works as a kind of small comedy.
